25-yr-old better than Coutinho: Three things we learned about Tottenham from win against Dortmund

Eriksen is worth more than £100m

Christian Eriksen is closing in on a new Tottenham contract

Barcelona failed with a bid of £118million for Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho this summer, which begs the question, how much exactly is Christian Eriksen worth? The attacking midfielder, 25, has been outstanding for Spurs in 2017 and has been far more consistent than Countinho, who looked exceptionally rusty upon his return to the Liverpool team as a second-half substitute on Wednesday night. Eriksen’s surgical passing and complete awareness of what is going on around him paved the way for Spurs to secure a major Champions League scalp. Eriksen has been the Premier League assist king for many seasons and the signs are that he can reach a consistent level of performance that is higher even than Coutinho, whose best is brilliant but he also plumbs depths that the Dane does not.
